Acrylic painting. Original size: 600mm x 900mm.


I did this one after the Buffy finale, but before he started on Angel. Kind of a transitional thing, rising from the ashes of one confrontation and into another.
I tried for a sepia type of feel for the the most part, then went darker with the Angel segment. The only real colour is the blue of his eyes.

Amazing job! I love your choices of scenes to show his past, and the sepia was a lovely choice, too. The likeness is spot on. Well done!
